Hey catman! Yes, so I tried to use ROSI all day but it never got back up :( As for ACORN, I don't know where I should be looking. It doesn't allow me to enrol in any courses

Once I log in what I see is:

 

Academics

Degree Registration Status
HA MHI 2017-2018 Fall/Winter
Invited
You do not have any enrolled courses for 2017 Winter.

I sent the deposit yesterday, so now I'm waiting for it to get processed...I encourage everyone who will send it to send it via expresspost so that you have a tracking number.

I emailed Zoe,  and she said that she'll let all applicants know of their decision next week.  Really hoping for some good news... :)

Has anyone gotten an interview from U of T and then been rejected? Wondering if interviews were a formality or not as they got backed up the day of mine and were probably trying to catch up on time so it felt rushed. Also, they asked me about 3 questions in total- so I thought that was a bit odd.

Did you have 3 separate meets with the profs or just 1 where they asked 3 questions? I met with 3 profs individually and each asked me 3 questions and I did the presentation thing. To me the interviews seemed mandated by the graduate department since they took notes on my answers. I think the interview counts as much as the application and it's used as sort of a sanity check prior to accepting someone into the program, in my opinion.

Mine was via telephone as i'm from out of town- it was with Julia and one other person.  They asked me about myself, i did my presentation and then they asked me 3 questions together.  Nervous because it seemed a bit rushed so I couldnt gauge their thoughts ! Hence I was hoping interviews were moreso a formality

I also had a phone interview, because I am out of town as well. But it was a phone call with 3 separate professors. And I did my presentation with Julia. But it did seem like it was a little rushed, since I had maximum 15 mins with each of them.

That is so odd, mine was with only Julia and another member - it was with the both of them.  Did you apply for the full stream?

Congrats @Curlygirl123

Yeah same thing as catman: met with 2 faculty members and the program director. Answered 3 questions with Julia and a faculty member, then did 5 min presentation to the other faculty member, who asked questions.

I will be accepting the offer. Looking forward to meeting the 2017 cohort :)

I would recommend emailing Zoe to solicit a response on your application status. Executive MHI offers may just take more time!

@Runningblu3 I received an interview on Feb 22

I got wait listed for the executive stream of this program, they don't disclose the ranking so I guess I will be waiting this out.

Any reason you guys chose McM over UofT?

I had only applied for MSc eHealth Program. I am related to health field and Mcmaster is well known for heath things. 8 months internship is a plus point for this program. Commute is also one thing for me as I am located in Mississuaga
